About Cheriss May:

Cheriss May is a lauded portrait and editorial photographer based in Washington, D.C. She is the president of Women Photojournalists of Washington, an Adobe Education Leader, and an adjunct professor at Howard University, her alma mater. She is often commissioned to speak about inclusive storytelling. Her work has appeared in O Magazine, The White House Historical Association, The New York Times, Bloomberg, Time, ABC News, The Today Show, and MSNBC. Cheriss’s work is featured in a permanent exhibit: MFON’s In Conversation: Visual Meditations on Black Masculinity at the African American Museum in Philadelphia.

“Cheriss May: Beyond The Protest” is part of the 2020 fall program series for the upcoming CCP exhibition Photojournalism 20/20: A Think Tank for an Unimaginable Present. Looking through the lens of CCP’s historical collection, Photojournalism 20/20 will consider the critical role of photojournalism during this period of physical confinement, protests for racial justice, and a presidential election season. The installation takes on a new timeliness by acting as an interactive, in-progress think tank that gathers raw material in real time about photojournalism in our daily and collective lives over the course of 2020. It does so in the search for ways to address how photography is both shaping and documenting these global crises, and to archive our experience of 2020 for future research about photojournalism.
